I was recently lucky enough to be chosen to receive a Mom Voxbox from Influenster chock full of lovely products.  Among them was a single bar of ivory soap that Ivory was kind enough to send .  Although I’m not normally a ‘bar’ soap type of person, I did find many uses for this product.  I flaked some into my laundry and it did a great job.  Also, I found that it’s actually pure and gentle enough to use on my face without breakouts.  Overall, very good product at a reasonable price. Find your Ivory now at your nearest retailer, including stores such as Walmart and Target as well as any major grocery, dollar and drug store.  A 10-pack of Ivory bar soap retails for around  $4.49 (bath bar size).

If you have little ones with allergies then you’re probably already familiar with Children’s Claritin. It’s a lifesaver for many of us and an indispensable part of the allergy season ‘survival kit’ that all allergy moms keep on hand. Children’s Claritin has long been part of my own ‘survival kit’ and I’m proud to say that BeautySleeping is now part of the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew. Mom Select and Children’s Claritin have put together this initiative to help moms and kids with tips and resources to get through allergy season. There’s a printable coupon for Children’s Claritin available here

I’m so pleased to announce that Beauty Sleeping has been chosen to take part in this special opportunity, Coppertone Water MOMS. We all know how important sun protection for everyone, but especially our little ones, is during the summer. I’m committed to making sure my babies are protected EVERY time they’re exposed to the sun and I hope you are too! I received an absolutely fantastic welcome kit from Mom Select and Coppertone which included a canvas tote bag, samples of Coppertone products, a water bottle, and an inflatable beach ball. I’ve already handed out almost all of the sample tubes of sunscreen. Thank you Mom Select and Coppertone!

I received the cutest little Fruit Smoothie face mask from Montagne Jeunesse in my complimentary Influenster Holiday Vox-Box.  I see these frequently at Walgreens, Wal-Mart, and CVS.  My 6 year old daughter is obsessed with face masks and beauty products in general, so she immediately glommed onto this and begged until I agreed to do a face mask with her.  She applied it to both of us and it was a lot of fun–it smelled fantastic and left both of us with silky smooth skin.  Of course she has perfect baby skin anyways, but she really had a great time doing this with me.  More information about Montagne Jeunesse can be found on their official website at http://www.montagnejeunesse.com The official word on Montagne Jeunesse as provided by Influenster:

I recently received a complimentary NYC Liquid Lipshine in ‘Nude York City’ as part of my Influenster holiday Vox-Box.  This is a fantastic gloss to toss in your purse for a quick touch-up.  The color is a nice neutral nude that has a similar consistency to a MAC Lipglass but at a much more inexpensive price point.  It applies with a flexible doe’s foot applicator and has a pleasant cocoa-y vanilla scent that I like.  It gives a nice shine and MLBB appearance but if you’re looking for it to cover your lip color you will want to choose a different shade.  My pigmented lips still peek out from underneath this, but I don’t mind that.  This is a sticky gloss, again reminiscent of MAC’s Lipglasses, that you will want to reapply after eating or drinking.  You can find more information about NYC on their official website at  http://www.newyorkcolor.com/  The official word on NYC as provided by Influenster:
